My Travel and Experience in Istanbul 2 - Blue Mosque

10개월 전

After visiting the beautiful Hagia Sophia, I headed for the Blue Mosque. As I approached the mosque, I saw incredible architecture as seen in the picture.

The Blue Mosque is located in the oldest part of a city on two continents. This mosque is a real work of art and a must-see stop for every tourist.

The real name of the Mosque is not the Blue Mosque, but the Sultanahmet Camii, translated by Sultan Ahmed's Mosque. The reason why they call it blue is because the interior is predominantly blue tile.

The mosque was built in 1616. The person responsible for the construction of the Mosque was Sultan Ahmed I, He was only 16 when he arrived at the throne in 1603. And he only ordered the construction of the Mosque when he was 19 years old. Unfortunately, he died one year before construction was completed, at 27 years old.

Entry into the Mosque itself is not allowed unless you are covered in a wardrobe especially by a woman. There is a wardrobe at the entrance that equips you to get in. The picture shows my girlfriend and her friend

The interior of the Mosque is illuminated by the sun's rays entering through 260 windows.
Each of the tiles found in the interior is hand-cut and painted and has 20,000.
Amazing isn't it?
